Typical outrageous show from the Spring 77 run. Doesn't get as much attention as some of the others from this tour, but really deserves some time. If you've got some time today, you could do much worse than giving this one a listen. As a baseball fan, I particularly love this show because I can say it's got "Back-To-Back Jacks".

The Dead get loose in Tuscaloosa. Even with Alabama Getaway a couple of years or so down the road, the Heart of Dixie was not a frequent stop on the tour, was it?

"this show is sick! Everything is tastey all around.

SICKEST jack a roe ive ever heard."

What I really want to know, though, is when did the word sick start being used as a superlative adjective? Call me a traditionalistic old fogey, but this just doesn't work for me.

They tried "crippled", but it didn't go over so well.

As in: "Man, that show was freakin' crippled!"

It was thought that "sick" as a little less harsh.

I first heard it on the beach in San Diego in 1996 -- I thought it was so funny I started saying it. Now I say it often just like you.

"That show was sick yo."

Hum-dinger of a show, to use an antiquated baseball term. (For home run).

This Jack a Roe is as good as advertised--my favorite, in fact, and is the very one Phil chose for his "from the Phil Zone" CD released a few years back.

If you like the Mosque from 5/25 (yet another 30th ann. show soon to be celebrated) you'll like this show in very much the same way.

It's got a mellow groove throughout that just flows with ease and mastery. Good ol' '77 strikes again with this show.

Yep, and Jerry pitched a complete game, his curve ball hypnotizing the crowd and his heater keeping Donna off the plate for almost the entire game (always a tricky thing to do, give how much the infamous rally-crusher would occasionally crowd the plate; admit it, we were always hoping for a bean ball every now and then). Jerry's change up also kept everybody guessing on each tune, not knowing what was coming next, and then getting blown away by the final pitch of the at-bat.

Whenever a batter hits a home run and the very next batter hits another one, it is commonly referred to by some announcers as "Back To Back Jacks", a "Jack" being a term for a home run.
Happy to provide some education on socially crucial topics at any time.

I'd be lost without your service my friend. I am a baseball fan -- shame on me. Go Braves. Dale Murphy was my hero growing up in the 80's. Who's your team -- I know you're gonna say the Mets -- bring it on.

By the way Jack -- Nice 30th show.

Dale Murphy was the man. My dad used to take me to Braves games in the early to mid seventies thru the early eighties. In my room, I had that poster of Murphy in the old light blue away uniform holding the bat that was glowing like a light stick. It might actually still be in my mom's attic. Haven't heard anyone mention him in a while. I'm still a Braves fan - really like Andruw Jones and John Smoltz.

And Bob Horner was fat slug who we used to yell at because he wouldn't even pretend to make an effort to get a ball that was more than 2 feet from third base.

Fulton County Stadium. Cheap tickets for the bleachers and then able to relocate right above the dugouts. Chick-fil-a's and sneaking in bacardi to pour in our cokes.

Saw Hammerin' Hank hit his final one as a Brave in person(1974 - damn, I'm old - but not old enough to have caught Pig)
